Nautical Challenge - Simon Says Stamps


This weeks fun challenge from Simon Says Stamps is super easy to join. Cruise along with Simon Says Stamps and create something inspired by a nautical theme relating to ships, ocean, sailing, etc.  When I noticed this striped paper in my scrap drawer, I knew it would be a perfect fit.  I find it extremely helpful to select the pattern paper first and then color the stamped image using coordinating colors.  Then I did a quick bit of water coloring and cut it into a tag shape.  It didn't seem finished until I added the row of red brads and laced them with jute.  Aren't Penny Black hedge hogs stamps simply the cutest?

You can learn about the Monday Challenge guidelines... HERE.
Check back with me tomorrow when I share one more nautical inspired card.
